Great footage of a classic football game. As I was listening early on the broadcast I hear the announcer named Bill McColgan who has the same last name as me! The other announcer Ray Scott a legend. I have football cards of a lot of these players..Yale Larry,Terry Barr,Jim Brown,Joe Schmidt,Tobin Rote Wow household names back then. Pretty cool video and love the Lion mascot at the halftime show. Awesome watch this to see what the NFL looked like in the 50's!

It was fun to watch this, what a powerhouse the Detroit Lions were in those days! I remember my Dad talking about Lions QB Tobin Rote, a few years after this game he came to Toronto and was QB for the CFL's Toronto Argonauts.

Oh great, now instead of just getting to see the Browns get beat year in an year out I can re-live their loses of the past. Why not just post video of the drive or the fumble, or the ice bowl!

What a game! What a team! Now 54 years later I look forward to the Lions winning the Super Bowl.
